Not so much motorways in Estonia. But I guess that the traffic volumes aren't that high

Probably in the middle of the sea there is a sign too

It doesn't make any sense...

I like this way of signing as well, my partner always goes crazy in Czech if destination is on the left and turning is right...

There probably was an entrance before where you didn't get the chance to go to Tallinn, so you have to turn here. Just my 2 cents.

a value of concept of a word "highway" in all Baltic countries is different than in Western or even Central Europe - when there are two lanes in each party and between them there is a space or even crashbarriers, then for the locals it's a first class road! I mean it's called a "motorway" or "highway", whatever, here!!! So it's a common thing to have such U-turns on a "highway" in Baltics!

If it only were for it, then it would be OK, but these roads are actually signed with a motorway sign:





The"motorway" ends a few kms down the road:
